- one material for core build-up and cementation
Closer to nature:
When it comes to core build-up, build-up filling and post cementation, LuxaCore Z is one of the world‘s front runners.
No wonder – the mechanical properties of LuxaCore Z are closer to those of natural teeth than any other material in its category. Outstanding characteristics: LuxaCore Z cuts like dentine. This allows particularly simple and precise preparation
free from grooves.
Thanks to genuine nanotechnology patented by DMG and the addition of zirconium dioxide, new top values for compressive strength and cutting characteristics have been achieved.
The high compressive strength gives stability under the crown.
The right partners allow quality care to be provided perfectly: The LuxaPost composite post and the LuxaBond-Total Etch adhesive system give the dentist the best possible assistance.
With zirconium dioxide
and nanotechnology for the best results.
Why all nanotechnology isn‘t the same.
The use of nanotechnology generally involves particle agglomeration. In other words, the particles within the resin matrix form »lumps«.
This, however, adversely affects desired and beneficial properties such as the compressive strength and the good grinding characteristics.
The special nanotechnology in LuxaCore Z that has been patented by DMG prevents this particle agglomeration. The particles remain separated from each other and the material can then exploit the full potential of nanotechnology.
LuxaCore Z-Dual is closer to natural dentine than the competition in terms of cutability.
Moreover, the proportion of zirconia gives excellent compressive strength.
This ensures top-quality, natural restorations – and this has been confirmed in figures as well, as shown in the graphs on the right.
Excellent flow properties.
The material‘s outstanding flow properties guarantee optimum adaptation to the shape of cavity walls and posts.
When used as a post cement, the thin film thickness of just 20 μm is beneficial (the limit for precision cement according to ISO 4049 is 25 μm).
